The best initial test for the diagnosis of Perthes is a pelvic radiograph.

Eventually, the femoral head begins to fragment stage 2with subchondral lucency crescent sign and redistribution of weight-bearing stresses leading to thickening of some trabeculae which become more prominent.

You can also scroll through stacks with your mouse wheel or the keyboard arrow keys. The investigation of atraumatic limp will often include a hip ultrasound to look for effusion, but ultrasound is unlikely to pick up osteonecrosis. Osteonecrosis generally occurs secondary to abnormal or damaged blood supply to the femoral epiphysis, leading to fragmentation, bone loss, and eventual structural collapse of the femoral head.

The presence of metaphyseal involvement not only increases the likelihood of femoral neck deformity but also make early physeal closure with resulting leg length disparity more likely.

Case 18 Case Perthes disease is relatively uncommon and in Western populations has an incidence approaching 5 to Case 16 Case It should not be confused with Perthes lesion of the shoulder. The radiographic changes to the femoral epiphyses depend on the severity of osteonecrosis and the amount of time that there has been alteration of blood supply:.
